The Leenane Inspector

Leenane Inspector

In the summer of 1990, James Wyatt is sent to investigate water pollution problems in Leenane in the west of Ireland. Middle aged, with issues, he soon becomes entangled in a web of greed, intrigue, and danger. He also finds love.

Wyatt's first meeting with local fisherman Tommy Joe O'Malley is antagonistic but later improves, and their relationship becomes a key factor underpinning the story. He also befriends a local priest campaigning against gold mining near Croagh Patrick. Wyatt is perceived by the locals as an outsider, and nicknamed ‘The Inspector’…

The drama plays out against the beautiful but rugged Connemara landscape, and forces Wyatt to re-examine his life.

Full review in the Autumn edition of Inshore Ireland, ((November 26).
